hey guys i just got myself a hp pavillion g7 1237dx on black friday, and it has some weird problems with the card reader.
1: if i install the latest card reader drivers , it wont support any sd card higher then 4g .
2: if i go back to the old drivers it supports up to 16g sd cards.
3: and no matter what drivers i have, it can read all the files on my 32g sd card but can't change anything on it is like is write protected but is not.
i went to best buy where i got mine and we tested my card in all the g7 series they had in display , none of them supported my 32g , the guys at geek squad tried everything to get it to work but no luck all the other computers in the store had no problems supporting my card except the hp g7 series, anyone has an idea how can i get my g7 to support my 32g card...........
yesterday i called hp customer support and we tried everything , we even updated the graphic drivers but nothing ....the only solution they gave me is to wait for a bios update or another card reader driver update.

I just got a transcend 32 g micro sd and have much the same problem. Can't write or make a folder on my hp g7. File mgr locks up busy and has to be shut down. Works fine on my desktop xp. After the g7 screws it up I have to go to the desktop and reformat. Can copy files to the micro sd and it works fine in my android. HP needs to fix this problem.
